    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry likely will take over as the starting running back for the Titans in 2018 after the release of RB DeMarco Murray.

    Huddle Up: Henry led the team with 744 yards this season and received just under half of the carries. He could also be more involved in the passing game as the starter. He should be able to improve on his stats next season and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

    Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson said at the NFL Scouting Combine on Wednesday, Feb. 28, how much he is 'looking forward' to working with RB Derrick Henry 'in the new offense,' adding that 'he is obviously a little more acclimated to the pro game and I think he can be a guy we can hand the ball to and throw it to.'

    Huddle Up: It seems a lot more likely than not that the Titans will be moving on from DeMarco Murray, which could set up Henry for a huge 2018 campaign. Owners should be excited over the prospects of drafting Henry, as he has the chance to be a monstrous RB1 with a full workload on a weekly basis next season. It wouldn't be surprising to see his ADP register somewhere in the first round.

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ranked third in the NFL - among players who recorded at least 175 carries - with 4.09 yards gained after defenders closed within one yard of him in 2017, according to Next Gen Stats. Henry decisively cleared 3.7 yards gained after close in five games, but he fell under that mark in all the others.

    Huddle Up: Henry's inconsistency in making defenders miss from short range - or powering through those tackle attempts - is actually a bit troubling for a 247-pound back with impressive straight-line athleticism. The Titans figure to benefit from a chance at offensive coordinator as a whole - Matt LaFleur was hired to replace Terry Robiskie - and DeMarco Murray is a candidate for release this offseason, both of which could enable Henry to reach the ceiling he has displayed at times during his first two NFL seasons.

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 12 times for 28 yards and caught three passes for 21 yards in a 35-14 loss to the New England Patriots Saturday, Jan. 13.

    Huddle Up: New England shut down Henry early, and Tennessee had to abandon the run after falling behind. There is a chance DeMarco Murray doesn't return in 2018, and if that's the case, Henry will have RB1 potential.

  • Posted: 1/7/2018 3:09pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry is expected to start in the AFC Divisional Playoff Game against the New England Patriots, head coach Mike Mularkey indicated Sunday, Jan. 7.

    Huddle Up: Henry is expected to start, although DeMarco Murray (knee) hasn't been ruled out yet. Still, Henry is the player you want in fantasy postseason leagues and DFS play heading into New England.

  • Posted: 1/6/2018 5:02pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed for 156 yards and one touchdown on 23 carries against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Wild Card playoff game Saturday, Jan. 6. He also caught two passes for 35 yards during the game.

    Huddle Up: Henry received most of the carries during the game and was a big part of the team's success on offense. He likely will receive a lot of work next week if DeMarco Murray remains sidelined and would be a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 2:53pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed eight times for 25 yards in Week 16 against the Los Angeles Rams and he added one reception for six yards.

    Huddle Up: Henry saw a total of just nine touches, but that might change in the regular-season finale with DeMarco Murray (knee) going down with a knee injury late in Week 16 while not being able to put weight on his leg.

  • Posted: 12/22/2017 9:34pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ranks second in the NFL with 375 rushing yards in the fourth quarter this season, and he leads all backs with 214 rushing yards in the last five minutes of one-possession games.

    Huddle Up: The Titans like to use the bruising back to close out games, but that requires Tennessee to have the lead in the fourth quarter. That may not be the case against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 16, making Henry a roll-of-the-dice flex play.

  • Posted: 12/10/2017 8:14pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed eight times for just 20 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Arizona Cardinals and he did not catch any passes.

    Huddle Up: The touchdown was nice for Henry, but it was a poor outing all around for the Tennessee offense. He didn't pile up the yardage like in past games and he had eight touches to 13 for DeMarco Murray. He remains the backup and a low-end RB3 or flex fantasy play in leagues of 12 or more teams as long as Murray is active.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 6:18pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry posted 11 rushes for 109 yards and a touchdown in Week 13 against the Houston Texans, highlighted by a win-clinching 75-yard scoring gallop late in the fourth quarter.

    Huddle Up: Henry is a hard player to figure. Before his long scoring run he was basically doing nothing for his fantasy owners. At this point he remains more of an RB3 or flex fantasy option unless something happens forcing DeMarco Murray to the shelf.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 3:17pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 13 times for 79 yards in Week 12 against the Indianapolis Colts and he added 10 yards on his only reception on two targets.

    Huddle Up: DeMarco Murray was bottled up for the entire afternoon, but Henry had no issue solving the rush defense of Indianapolis. It's uncertain if Henry's performance will lead to more work heading into Week 13 against Houston, but he is worth using as a RB3 or flex option in most fantasy formats at this point.

  • Posted: 11/16/2017 10:36pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry logged seven carries for 32 yards as part of the team's Week 11 defeat versus the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Huddle Up: Not much went well for the Titans on Thursday, including the running game. While Henry fared better than backfield mate DeMarco Murray, the second-year pro continues to see uneven opportunities from one week to the next. As long as that continues, Henry is no better than a deep flex option.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 7:13pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ran eight times for 26 yards and a touchdown and had two catches for 10 yards in a 23-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Henry's carries continue to fluctuate from one game to the next, and he'll remain a risky flex play unless DeMarco Murray suffers an injury.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 1:56pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 13 times for just 13 yards in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns and he added two receptions for 11 yards on three targets.

    Huddle Up: Henry exploded for 131 yards and a touchdown on Monday night against Indianapolis and he had big expectations with DeMarco Murray entering as a question mark with a hamstring injury. Henry was a total dud, and now Murray gets the bye to get back to 100 percent.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 8:59pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry racked up 131 rushing yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in the team's Week 6 game Monday, Oct. 16, versus the Indianapolis Colts. He also had one catch for 14 yards.

    Huddle Up: Henry did the majority of his damage on his final rush attempt, taking it 72 yards into the end zone to put the game out of reach. His owners should not only be happy with this performance but also with the fact that he recorded more rushes than DeMarco Murray, who received just 12 carries. Henry is a fine weekly FLEX option in most leagues, with the potential to be a serviceable RB2 if his workload was steadier.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 6:27pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry has been patient, according to offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie, and Robiskie said he plans to have Henry be more involved in the offense going forward.

    Huddle Up: Henry could become a viable flex option if he receives enough carries, but it remains to be seen how much more involved he will actually be going forward. He is too risky to start against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6.

  • Posted: 10/8/2017 6:32pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry ran four times for nine yards in a 16-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 5.

    Huddle Up: Henry has been an afterthought in the offense the last two weeks, rushing 10 times for just 16 yards. He remains a must-own player, but only as a handcuff to DeMarco Murray.

  • Posted: 9/25/2017 3:56pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (thigh) will be able to play in Week 4 even though he suffered a thigh contusion in Week 3, according to head coach Mike Mularkey.

    Huddle Up: Henry received the start in Week 3 because of DeMarco Murray's injury and finished with 54 yards. He could start again if Murray is not able to but play but will have a solid role even if Murray returns. He should be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues and could be a No. 2 fantasy running back if he starts.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 8:12pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry (thigh) suffered a bruised thigh in a 33-27 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3, according to head coach Mike Mularkey. Henry played through the injury and finished with 13 carries for 54 yards and one catch for 10 yards.

    Huddle Up: The injury doesn't sound too serious, and Henry finished with one less carry than DeMarco Murray, who came into the game nursing a hamstring injury of his own. When healthy, Murray should continue to lead the backfield, but Henry remains a must-own backup, especially for Murray owners.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 5:31pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed 14 times for a career-high 92 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Jaguars.

    Huddle Up: Henry was leaned upon more heavily in the lopsided win with the team holding out veteran DeMarco Murray for most of the second half to rest. Don't look too much into the carries distribution right now, as it was skewed because of the blowout. Now, if in a close game in Week 3 Henry sees more touches than Murray, then it's time to get excited.

  • Posted: 8/27/2017 2:27pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry rushed for 24 yards on nine carries in the preseason game against the Chicago Bears Sunday, Aug. 27. He also caught three passes for 29 yards and one touchdown in the game.

    Huddle Up: Henry will be the No. 2 running back for the Titans this season but should still see a decent amount of touches. He can be considered a No. 4 fantasy running back in standard leagues and could also be a handcuff to DeMarco Murray.

  • Posted: 8/19/2017 3:24pm ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry finished with 36 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 16 carries and added three receptions for 17 yards against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: Henry got the start with DeMarco Murray resting again, but he couldn't get much going outside of his 17-yard touchdown run in the first quarter as the Panthers owned the line of scrimmage in the run game early. He plowed his way for another score on the Titans' next drive. Despite his inefficiency in this contest, Henry is one of the top two or three handcuffs in fantasy football and would be a high-end RB1 if Murray is forced to miss any time this year.

  • Posted: 8/4/2017 9:12am ET

    Tennessee Titans RB Derrick Henry had five rushing touchdowns to go along with 490 rushing yards and a 4.5 yards-per-carry average as a rookie, but it is not unrealistic he could come close to doubling his total yards and touchdowns, even as a backup, in 2017, according to ESPN.com's Cameron Wolfe.

    Huddle Up: Accomplishing those feats would require Henry to push for 200 touches (he had 123 last year) and to win goal-line duties (a strong possibility). It's a tall order for a player who has DeMarco Murray in front of him, and he would almost certainly need the 29-year-old to miss multiple weeks due to injury in order to get there. Henry is still one of the most valuable handcuffs in fantasy and is well worth a selection in the middle rounds as a low-end RB3 with huge upside.
